A limerick a week #114

‘Balls’ to that! 

‘Hats off’ to those members of the UK Parliamentary women’s football team who decided to have a kick-about in the Chamber of the House of Commons after their scheduled match was cancelled due to a possible late sitting and vote.

Apparently, the Parliamentarians told the Chamber’s doorkeepers that they had permission for their antics; something the Speaker of the House later insisted was not given by him!

Just like naughty schoolkids.

Of course it just cries out for a limerick…

Within Parliament’s sanctified halls
There’s nothing, it seems, that forestalls
The sense of unease
When our female MPs
Start playing around with their balls!
